Hi all,<BR>I am trying to get some code together that will search for only complete words from an access field. Basically i am trying to accomodate for things like . or ! on the end of a word. All this works fine except when a carriage return is present at the end of a word. A normal html text field is used to insert the text into the field. <BR>So basically the question is what would a carriage return look like stored in a memo field in Access? Then i can add it to my list of possible trailing characters.<BR><BR>TIA.<BR>Sam.
